Expat911 is a smartphone app that was created to give you “peace of mind” while vacationing or living in Mexico.
The Expat911 app allows you to report any type of emergency (Fire, Police or Ambulance /Medical) by simply clicking a button within the app downloaded on your smartphone.
An English speaking, ExPat911 operator will be in direct contact with you as soon as you activate the Expat911 app. A bilingual Expat911 operator will then report your emergency and your exact GPS location, on your behalf, to the correct Spanish speaking Mexican authorities, depending on the type of emergency you are experiencing.
No more worrying whether your Spanish skills will be up to the task of reporting an emergency! No need to worry about the delay and confusion caused by a language barrier at the time of an emergency.
Expat911 is the only company in Mexico with a 24 hr., bilingual English/ Spanish speaking staff on hand to assist at the time of your emergency.
